Nice place to stop for a wine tasting. Standard cost of $5 for 7 pours. The server was very friendly. The atmosphere was nice. I think this would be a great addition to your wine tasting crawl.

Enjoyed stopping in. Mostly friendly staff. You can stand and taste unless you have a medical condition and must use a stool.

Definitely stop here when you are in Galena. I like sweet wines and they had a good selection. The women doing the tasting was very knowledge about the wines we were tasting. Will be going back next time we are in Galena.
